The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (then named the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation) Chairman Dr. John L. Lewis, Jr., and Dr. Carolyn Runowitz presented the 1998 Public Service Award to Barbara Walters ABC, for her reporting on women’s issues. The award was facilitated by Dr. Richard Barakat and was presented at ABC News Headquarters, Lincoln Square, New York City.
Community outreach played an important role in the 2018 Society of Gynecologic Oncology Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer, held March 24-27 in New Orleans.
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. After creating the month in 1999, the Foundation strives to bring attention about these cancers through public awareness campaigns.
